Episode 8 - The Realms of Bennu


Hosts: Jim, Jon & Kent

Guest:
Mike of Sick & Twisted Productions

We
delve into a fantasy world in which the living and the dead are tied to each other in an unending cycle of birth, life, death, afterlife and reincarnation. In the Realms of Bennu, what comes after death is just as important as what happens beforehand!

Recommendation: Jon recommends A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula K. Le Guin
